Outotec will supply a 35MW gross electrical biomass power plant to a facility in Turkey.
The order value is approximately €55 million, which has been booked in Outotec’s 2018 second quarter order intake.
Outotec is responsible for engineering, procurement and construction of the plant, excluding the civil works. Based on Outotec’s proprietary fluidised bed technology, the main process components in the delivery are the biomass storage system, fluidised bed boiler, turbine and the flue gas treatment system.
The new plant designed by Outotec will be located close to the biomass sources in the agricultural area, where the disposal from large farms is becoming an environmental concern. The plant will generate green electricity for the national grid and produce clean fertiliser as a by-product.
Designed to operate below the strict European emission limits, the plant is expected to be fully operational in 2020.
Outotec’s Metals, Energy and Water business head Kalle Härkki said: “This is a great achievement for Outotec and one of the first projects of the Turkish initiative for promoting green energy out of biomass.
“In 2016, we delivered and commissioned one of Turkey’s first 30MW power plants based on alternative fuel and are now happy to provide our fluidised bed technology for another green energy project.”
